Varied standards of care

By Michelle Barson, KeraVet Bio Staff

Dr. Cherice Roth, KeraVet Bio Advisor and Chief Medical Officer for Fuzzy, shares that three of the most common reasons a pet visits her office or telehealth portal, Fuzzy.com, is for skin infections, hot spots, and soft tissue injuries.  It is estimated that 20% of dogs, at any given moment, suffer from atopic dermatitis.  Atopic dermatitis typically manifests as pruritus (itchiness) and erythema (skin redness and inflammation). Today, there is no consistent, preferred solution to these painful and bothersome skin issues. Veterinarians tend to advise one of the following four solutions based on the severity and their preference for care:

Antibiotics. Antibiotics can take several days for effect, have little impact on the rate of wound healing, and disrupt the natural biome, often leading to other recovery issues.

Immune System Modulation. These powerful medications have systemic effects that lower the efficacy of the immune system.

Non-Prescription Products. These products tend to be expensive and are highly inconsistent in their efficacy.

E-Collars. Placing an animal in an E-collar increases stress to the animal, the owner, and the vet professional.

KeraVet Gel has been designed to eliminate the need for antibiotics, e-collars, or over-the-counter remedies that may be dangerous to your dog, all while delivering faster, more effective wound healing for your pet.
